Quick Guide to edX 

Here you will find some basic guidance and links to resources on how to use YouTube for teaching, training, learning and development.

edX is one of a number of platforms that individuals use to study courses online.

  • It uses the MOOC approach (Massive Open Online Course).
  • More than 100  partner universities use edX to offer courses, including the universities of Oxford, Zurich and London.

Here are a couple of resources on how edX works

edX offers two types of certificate. Note that not all courses offer certificates, and that archived courses do not offer certificates. Verified certificates are available for a fee that varies by course. These certificates require you to verify your identity before you can receive your certificate. For more information see Verified Certificates
